Muscat, The Cultural Club will hold a forum on

22 October 2018 to promote voluntary initiatives in the cultural field by

launching competition in the digital area to honour, celebrate and

encourage voluntary cultural initiatives, as well as giving members the

opportunity to discuss the challenges they face, and their role in

supporting culture in the Omani society.

The two-day forum aims to motivate Omanis to learn about the

rapid developments in the field of communications and information

technology, highlight the talents of young people in the digital industry,

build a generation capable of keeping abreast of developments in the

ICT sector and encourage young people to volunteer in the cultural

field through the digital content.

The three areas covered by the digital content competition

include social media, cultural forums and short films (not exceeding 3

minutes). The Cultural Club has identified a number of general

conditions for participation. The first of October 2018 is the deadline for

submitting applications.
